Mr. Strong in the Mr. Men book

Mr. Strong is so strong from eating many eggs, to the point that he finds himself accidentally breaking things, until he finds a farmer whose cornfield is on fire. Mr. Strong is so strong he picks up the farmer's barn and fills it with water, pours it on the cornfield, extinguishing it. Mr. Strong is rewarded with a basket full of eggs from the chickens on the farm. He went home and sit on the chair, but it broke. At the end of the story, the reader is surprised to find out that Mr. Strong is having ice cream for dessert.

The Mr. Men Show

Mr. Strong in the Mr. Men Show

In the 2008 TV series The Mr. Men Show, Mr. Strong kept his red colour, but his shape is a triangle instead of a square in the books, he traded his hat for a brown weight buckle, and he has muscular arms to emphasize his character trait. As shown in the "Beach'n with the Boombox" music video, every Little Miss finds him attractive, though since it's a music video, it may not be canon. In "Beach Party A-Go Go" Little Miss Giggles and Little Miss Chatterbox fell in love with him. His catchphrase is "Aw, pickles!", and he usually says this when he breaks something by barely even touching it. In Amusement Park he seems to be afraid of heights as he comments in a shaky voice on how high they were going. He is seen as a nurse in Boo-Boos. He lives in a house that is white with a black roof, two windows and a door which is seen in some of the episodes. In the US and UK versions, he is voiced by Phil Lollar and Simon Greenall. His US voice is based on actor Sylvester Stallone.
